We strongly recommend the use of LiPo battery packs with this
craft due to their light weight. Light weight battery packs give
better speed and agility. The Futaba 2DR radio is ideal for this
craft and the Intellispeed Forward Only speed controller works
well with the HoverDart as well. You could also use an existing 2 channel radio
setup and speed controller if you have them.
